When a random act of kindness involves Katrina with Malcolm, a handsome teenage guardian angel intent on fulfilling her greatest wish, fame and fortune seem like the most obvious requests.

Originally posted on my blog, the Vintage Bookworm.
Coffeehouse Angel was a pretty good read, but didn't make it to my favorite's list. Something really bugged me about this novel, and I can't really figure out what it was. It took me a little while to get into it, but by the end I was reading through it pretty fast and when the last chapter came, I wanted to know more.
Even though Katrina was the main character, she wasn't my favorite. She just didn't feel very developed as a character to me. I liked her family and friends, though. I really liked how Elizabeth was unique and seemed to dress kind of funky and was artistic.
Mr. Darling made me really mad! He frustrated me so bad with all the things he did. He was just so... evil! Makes me mad just thinking about him again. He seemed so heartless. His daughter wasn't as bad as Katrina thought, though.
The writing itself was pretty good. It really makes me want to read more from Selfors.
I love the fictional small town she created, based off the small town of Poulsobo, Washington. It really has me interested in Scandinavian customs. She has a pretty good bit of Scandinavian customs in the book, and you can tell she put a lot of research into it.
Overall, it was a pretty fast, cute, coming of age read. I really liked the cover, too. I love the heart at the top of the coffee. And boy do I love coffee in general!
Praise for Saving Juliet *"Selfors injects an angst-ridden 17-year-old Manhattan actress into Shakespeare's star-crossed romance, yielding hilarious and often very clever results."-Publishers Weekly, starred review "Absorbing, exciting and useful for teachers, too." -Kirkus Reviews "The dialogue is lively, and fans of other contemporary Shakespeare retellings, such as Sharon Draper's Romiette and Julio, may enjoy this." -Booklist "The book will appeal to fans of historical fiction, time travel, adventure, and love stories."- VOYA Will appeal to readers looking for light chick-lit. School Library Journal Sufficient charm to get readers-steaming mug of coffee in hand-through a chilly afternoon. Kirkus Reviews
